Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
This package will install the integrated development environment that allows for program writing, code verification, compiling, and uploading to the Arduino development board. Example code will also be installed.
Some base AVR libraries will be provided by the depending additional package arduino-core-avr. More libraries can be installed within the IDE itself by calling the libarary manager. This requires a working internet access.
